Summary This paper estimates a living wage for wine grape growing area of Western Cape Province South Africa using a new methodology developed by the authors that builds and improves on earlier work on living wages published by ILO (see Anker, 2006 and Anker, 2011). This methodology has been used so far to estimate a living wage for urban areas in 9 countries for a multi-nationalcorporation. The present report for South Africa was supported by Fairtrade International as a first step to understand the impact of Living Wage on prices paid for rural commodities and as part of their memorandum with Social Accountability (SAI) and GoodWeave to develop a Living Wage methodology.
